It was the trial of Harry West on the charge of assault and battery on Mrs. Celestia Watson. In the justice court West was found guilty and fined $5 and costs, and the case was being heard yesterday on an appeal. Tho trial crows out of an alleged raid made on West's place before it was burned down by a number of Oaklandon citizens, who believed that the defendant.
